October Monthly Meeting - Tuesday October 17th @ 7pm-9pm 


Meet Bill Corbett of Marathon Mouth - Presenting "The 11,000ers of the Canadian Rockies: 4 more peaks"


Join us for a presentation on 11,000ers of the Canadian Rockies and meet the four new mountains Bill has added to his second edition of his book - bringing the total to 58 in the Canadian Rockies. A visual tour of many of the 11,000ers, specifically the dozen on the Columbia Icefield will be included as well as a few adventures of Bill's that he had whilst climbing these high peaks.

Bill Corbett was the third person to climb all the conventional 11,000-foot peaks of the Canadian Rockies (my first was on a Calgary Section trip). After finishing in 2002, I wrote The 11,000ers of the Canadian Rockies two years later as a history and guide to these high peaks; a completely revised and expanded edition was published last year. Born and raised in Edmonton, I have long been a journalist and freelance writer. My other books include Day Trips From Calgary and Marathon Mouth, a blog and ebook about road-trip dining in western North America (www.marathonmouth.me)

Bill will have copies of his newest book for sale (and he's happy to sign them too)! Books will be $35.00 each PLEASE BRING CASH TO PAY BILL FOR ANY BOOKS YOU WOULD LIKE TO PURCHASE
